of feeding a horse or "two and car-'

Jackson, Tenn., Feb. 22. (Special
to Nashville Globe.) Putriotio singing,
preceded by a fervent prayer in
which the benediction of an All-wise
God was asked upon the hundreds
gathered . here, marked the opening
of the annual conference of farmers
which has been conducted here for
) number of years under the auspices
of Lane College. The sessions began
promptly at ten o'clock after a pre
liminary meeting had, been held In the
main hall of Lane College. In addi
tion to perfecting the organization of
the conference the hearing of the re
ports of the local league and county
organizations, and the compiling of
statistics which had been arranged
prior to the meeting proper took
nnj j place. The devotions were conducted
ny itev. a. w. vtumacK, a. h., one
cf the well known pastors of this
county. One of the rst departmental
meetings was tTie Madison County
Colored Fruitgrowers Association.
This proved interesting and inspir
ing. But for the rst real topic of
the conference for public discussion
was "How Host to Fight thePoul
Weevil." An expert from the United
States Government Agricultural and
Experimental Station delivered a
special address in which ihe told of
the work and the necessity of the
farmer applying himsolf to particu
lar work. The general topic for dis
cussion was "Every Farmer Must
Feed Himself and Family." Perhaps
no subject which will be discussed
throughout the sessions evoked more
interest than this one. The present
high cost oi fcod seemed to have in
jeeted moie life into the general
topic. Fillowing tips came "Improve
